BMW is one of Germany's top automobile, motorcycle and engine manufacturing company.
BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz are Germany’s best-selling luxury carmakers in the world. The Bavarian company was founded in 1916 and has its headquarters in Munich. It also owns and produces Mini cars, and is the parent company of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
The M4 is just as brawny under the hood, with a straight six-cylinder 317 kilowatt engine reaching a maximum torque of 550 newton meters and launching the car from zero to 100 kph in just 4.4 seconds. A seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox is optional. The model we tested starts at 82,100 euros in Germany.
With the 2 Series Active Tourer, BMW is sticking its toe for the first time into the compact segment. It's intended to attract new customers to the brand with high sitting, lots of interior room and a variety of options. It's the first BMW with fron-wheel-drive and a three-cylinder-engine option.
With its new 4-series Gran Coupé, BMW aims to offer a more dynamic, elegant and sophisticated alternative to the 4-series coupé und convertible. And the Gran Coupé has exactly the same length, width and wheelbase as BMW's two-door coupé. But BMW is convinced this is a niche with a future. We checked out the Gran Coupé with a 180 kilowatt 428i gasoline-powered engine.
